Purdue to be without its best player against Nebraska

Purdue defensive tackle Jake Replogle, considered the Boilermakers' best NFL prospect, didn't travel to Lincoln.

Replogle will miss his second straight game while recovering from a concussion, according to the The Lafayette Journal & Courier. That's a big loss for a Purdue run defense that ranks last in the Big Ten, surrendering 264.33 yards per game on the ground.

Replogle has 28 tackles this season, including 3 for loss and 1.5 sacks. The senior has 141 tackles and seven sacks in his career and prior to last week hadn't missed a game in three years.
